'Ard Boyz 2009 Plans

So 'Ard Boyz is coming up in a few weeks and I'm thinking of taking a stab at it this year. Of course the first question is what army to play.

My orks would probably be the best choice but I know there will be a lot of ork players there already and for some reason that bothers me. In addition I don't really like moving that many boyz around in a timed event and the boards at our game store are choked full of terrain. I'm not going to go nuts with nob bikers and battlewagons for one day of gaming either.

My Tau would actually need the least amount or prep (in purchasing or painting) for 2500 pts but I just don't think they could stand up to the uber lists we're going to see. Lot's of monstrous creatures, psychic powers coming out of everywhere, crazy assault terminators, hordes of boys, and of course Nob bikers of doom. The one army the Tau would shine against would probably be mech IG, and certainly they are going to be floating out there as well. But really I think the most popular armies at my store are going to be Chaos, Orks, Marines, and then IG in that order.

So I'm leaning toward Black Templar. They're durable, they're killy, they've got enough tricks up their sleeve to deal with a good clip of the 'ard stuff. They aren't perfect, but I have enough to go for it and put together a list I think is competitive. So now to get down to a list that I'm actually happy with using...
